We all love home made baked goodies. I do quite enjoy making them at home, but often time and life get in the way. If you are busy getting ready to host friends for the weekend, other jobs may take priority. Wouldn’t it be lovely to be able to buy a homemade cake or some brownies? Unless there’s a convenient cake sale or you know a good local baker, you probably can’t unless you make it that cake yourself. Then Sponge Cakes Ltd got in touch and told me about their new brownies range. I really loved the idea of ordering brownies and having them delivered by post.
Sponge Cakes Ltd’s new brownies range is full of wonderful things. I tried out the Chocolate Orange brownies because chocolate orange is one of my favourite flavours. The brownies had a great texture with just the right amount of gooey ness and crumbliness. It’s an orange flavoured brownie with orange chocolate chunks throughout the mix. It’s topped with a white, dark and orange chocolate drizzle effect.
We tried the brownies out and home and I also took them around to a friend’s house for her family to try. They went down very well with everyone. I’d have liked them to be ever so slightly less sweet, but that’s a personal preference thing. The proof is in the eating and the brownies certainly didn’t last long.
I love the brownies are full of good things: free range eggs, gluten free flour and natural flavourings. They arrive well packaged and mine were undamaged in transit. Unusually the brownies come in a circular shape like a cake, rather than the square shapes that we have become more used to. This works well for me as I find it easier to cut a round cake into equal pieces.
If you aren’t sure which flavour to buy, maybe try the Four Sharing brownie, which has four quarters each a different flavour.
As well as trying out the new brownies range, I tried a Coffee Cake from Sponge Cakes Ltd too. For someone who isn’t a coffee drinker, it’s perhaps surprising that coffee cake is one of my favourites. Again the cake arrived well packaged and looking fabulous. It was very moist and did have that lovely homemade taste to it, whilst being a very professional looking treat. It got a lot of compliments and I’d certainly get one again, especially if I was entertaining or celebrating a birthday or similar.
I liked to idea of using coffee beans on top of the cake to add some crunch instead of the usual walnuts. Once again good quality ingredients are used in the baking, such as free range eggs. We had no trouble eating it all whilst it was fresh, but you can freeze left over slices.
Sponge Cakes Ltd have 14 flavours of cakes available so there should be something to tempt you. If you prefer you can have a sharing cake with either 14 flavours in one cake so you can have a slice of each one or a cake with four flavours that can be cut into slices.
